SLCE Architects has revealed a new rendering for 115 East 55th Street, a 185-foot-tall residential project underway in Midtown East. Developed by Zeckendorf Development, the 18-story project will rise directly adjacent to the eastern elevation of Norman Foster’s 425 Park Avenue.
As the Landmarks Preservation Commission resumes its review of construction applications, a slew of newly proposed developments have come to light. One of these projects includes a major retrofit of the former Hotel Wales at 1295 Madison Avenue in Carnegie Hill, Manhattan.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story residential building at 25-28 30th Drive in Astoria, Queens. Located between Crescent Street and 29th Street, the interior lot is three blocks from the 30th Avenue subway station, serviced by the N and W trains. Sal Lucchese under the Pnash Realty LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 95 Quincy Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. Located between Classon Avenue and Franklin Avenue, the interior lot is four blocks south of the Classon Avenue subway station, serviced by the G train. Omri Bar-Mashiah under the 95 Quincy LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Perhaps the most exciting skyscraper project proposed for New York last year is 350 Park Avenue, a nearly 1,500-foot-tall skyscraper from Vornado Realty Trust and Rudin Management. After YIMBY broke the news on Vornado’s expected 2027 completion date for the tower back in February, we stopped by the site to check on the status of its current occupant. Located between East 51st and East 52nd Streets, a total of two edifices would need to be demolished to make way for the development.
